Muscular contraction by Robert M Simmons( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is composed of a set of chapters contributed by past and present collaborators of the Nobel laureate Sir Andrew Huxley, covering the areas of muscle research to which he has made major contributions. The purpose of the book is to discuss the way that muscle works, asking questions at a fundamental level about the molecular basis of muscle tone production and muscle contraction. The majority of the chapters are concerned with muscle physiology and the relation between structure and function. The process of activation of muscle is dealt with, together with the mechanism of contraction itself. Although most of the book concerns itself with vertebrate skeletal muscle, several of the chapters deal with cardiac muscle. The book also features two introductory chapters discussing Sir Andrew's achievements in both nerve and muscle physiology. All those interested in the structure and function of muscle, or cell motility in general, will wish to read this book

Physiological determinants of exercise tolerance in humans( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Human exercise performance can be considered at many levels, from the sporting achievement of an exceptional athlete, to basic mobility in the elderly which has such important implications for independent living and hence quality of life." "An integrative approach is necessary to provide an understanding of the normal determinants and limitations of performance and also to provide an appropriate frame of reference within which dysfunction can be interpreted. Physiological Determinants of Exercise Tolerance in Humans describes physiological and biochemical responses to exercise. It examines the nature of the fatigue process, the adaptations that occur in response to training and how these aspects are influenced by a variety of environmental factors."--BOOK JACKET
